Mango, Peach and Pineapple Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2015
This recipe makes an absolutely delicious salsa! It is good on and with so many things. I used the fruit juice that came from the fruit instead of water as called for, and reduced the cilantro to 1/2 cup. The easiest way to chop everything is by using a Vidalia Onion Chopper" purchased at Bed, Bath & Beyond. By using their 20% off coupon the cost is only $15. This is my favorite kitchen tool and chops way more than just onions! It not only saves time, everything it chops comes out about the same size, so my dishes are more visually appealing. After all, presentation is everything!

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2015
I made several batches of this recipe to enjoy over the holidays and to give as gifts. I've made it before and thought it turned out well, but I made 2 changes this year that were more in keeping with the recipe and were well worth the time and effort. As several readers suggested, I included cardamom. Previously I didn't add it because 1) I wasn't familiar with it, 2) couldn't find it in the supermarket and 3)when I did find it the price was $51/pound. I only needed 1 teaspoon per "batch", so I went to our local Earth Fare and was able to purchase it in as small a quantity as I needed because they have bulk spices in jars and small plastic bags to self-serve fill as needed. I paid $1.07 for a couple of teaspoons. Quite a great deal! The second thing I did was to use my food processor to make a smoother mix which prevents the spices from gathering at the bottom of the mug in crunchy pieces. Makes for a much smoother drink.

Make Ahead Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2014
Big hit with our Easter brunch. Had some leftover ham I needed to use, so didn't bother with the sausage. It re-heats beautifully!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2014
I'm making this cake recipe for the second time today...it's THAT good! Pairing it with the French Silk Frosting recipe from this site, it's the perfect combination for a sensational cake. Reminiscent of my mothers oh-so-delicious French Silk Pie I grew up with, I'm hoping this Black Magic Cake with French Silk frosting will win first place at a cake baking competition at my church. All in the spirit of good fun. Wish me luck!

Chef John's Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2013
Just might be the best peach cobbler on the planet! What a great way to celebrate the opening season of fresh free-stone peaches. We live near South Carolina and Georgia, so peaches are a way of life for our family. I did't have any Chinese five-spice, so I used Chai tea seasoning and about 1/8th teaspoon nutmeg. Our entire kitchen smelled amazing, and the cobbler wasn't even in the oven. Took it to a BBQ and everyone raved about it. Kudos to Chef John for this recipe!

Restaurant-Style Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2013
I whipped this up in little or no time tonight and my family LOVED it! We're all taking leftovers of it in our lunches tomorrow. I used turkey smoked sausage and fat-free half & half to cut down on the fat grams. I used the entire bunch of kale - probably twice or more what the recipe called for because our family has decided we LOVE kale! Who knew?

The Best Parmesan Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
I made this last evening and it was a huge hit! I followed the recipe exactl, except for using thin sliced chicken breasts and crushing the croutons just a bit before adding to the dish. I didn't turn them into crumbs, just crushed them in half so they were in smaller pieces. It looked more like a crust and less like a bunch of croutons, but the flavor and texture was amazing!

S.O.P.P.

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Made this today using skinless turkey smoked sausaged (lower in fat) and didn't add ANY oil. Cut up the meat and veggies using a food chopper so everything was the same size. Put potatoes in the microwave for 7 minutes to soften. Cooked everything else in a skillet - the veggies made enough juice so the mixture didn't stick and I never needed any oil. Added the potatoes the last 5 minutes. Seasoned with salt, pepper, and a dash of hot pepper for kick. We love this dish!!!

Chicken Suiza Cornbread Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
Would give it 10 stars if I could. My daughter said, "Momma, you need to laminate this recipe to protect it because we're going to be having it often". Absolutely the best casserole I've made in a long time. I used mexicorn for color & flavor, canned chicken for convenience, and only 1/2 cup sour cream + 1 can cream of chicken soup instead of the full 1-1/2 cups sour cream. I also used 2 eggs instead of the egg subsitute. Otherwise, no changes. ALSO, it reheats beautifully!

Buttermilk Syrup

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
I haven't made this yet, but I was served it over hot, fresh blueberry pancakes at the home of my cousin. It was so absolutely delicious, I haven't stopped thinking about it since that morning. Now, I'm going to make it for my own family. Thanks for sharing this fabulous recipe :)

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
Here's review #800 - Excellent pie and so very easy. I received a new heavy duty, but manual juicer that just about turns the citrus half inside out to get every last drop of juice - we all love this recipe - will go to the front of my recipe file and replace any other Key Lime Pie recipe I might have ever been tempted to use.

Yummy Bok Choy Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
We especially love the dressing for this salad even if I changed the ingredients just a bit to use what I had on hand. I substituted rice wine vinegar and used Splenda instead of sugar for the dressing. For the salad I substituted a blend of nappa cabbage and romaine lettuce. I used rice noodles instead of chow mein because I like the smaller texture and greater crunch. I also added orange slices, Craisins, pineapple tidbits, fresh sweet red pepper chopped, and offered diced chicken/and or shrimp as protein toppings. We had this for supper on Christmas as a healthy finish to our day.

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
Absolutely love these cookies. Used freshed squeezed orange juice instead of concentrate, Craisins for the cranberries, and pecans 'cause my DH is allergic to walnuts. Taking them to a Christmas Cookie Swap in the morning.

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2010
This dish received 8 thumbs up from the 4 of us at the supper table tonight. I made it using breakfast sausage and added sweet green and red peppers along with the onions for additional color. Will make again - for supper or breakfast!

White Wine Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
Our family LOVES this dish so much we save it for company! The only changes I make are for my convenience and for the health of those who enjoy it. I make it using meat pulled and chopped from a deli-roasted chicken, discarding the skin (our Sam's Club has the best and there is enough meat on their big birds that I only use 1/2 of one chicken), and I use low fat: cheese, soup and mayonnaise. Very impressive when I serve it over brown rice. More guilt-free with these changes.

Oatmeal and Applesauce Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
Just made these for supper tonight and our family of 4 gave it 8 thumbs up! As other readers suggested, I thinned the batter a little with some extra skim milk and I used 1/2 all-purpose and 1/2 whole wheat flour. This will be in regular roatation at our table and I don't think I'll ever buy packaged pancake mix again.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
Love this recipe! I cut the honey and oil measurements in half and substituted Splenda and applesauce, respectively, to make up the difference. Also added 1/3 cup almond butter and used 1/2 cup white flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour. Think I've got a winner my family is going to love!

Kielbasa and Cabbage

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
Great basic ingredients, but in no way am I eating 39 fat grams in one dish. I don't eat that many fat grams in an entire day! Comfort foods we love that can be enjoyed for a lot fewer calories using turkey bacon (which produces almost no drippings) and Healthy Choice turkey smoked sausage. Just taking care of my health and that of my family.
